After Fillings

When anesthetic has been used, your lips teeth and tongue may numb for several hours after the appointment. Avoid any chewing until the numbness has completely worn off.
It's normal to experience some hot, cold and pressure sensitivity after your appointment. Your gums may be sore for several days.
You may chew right away on white fillings, since they set completely at the time of your appointment.
If your bite feels uneven, if you have persistent pain or if you have any other questions or concerns, please call our office at (847)229-7988.
